The news out of the Middle East is so frustrating. I've walked the streets of Haifa, Safed (Zefat) (shown above) and even Nahariya, so I can imagine the anxiety facing Israelis. However, even from a pragmatic perspective I don't see how Israel could end the Katyusha attacks. Yes, Hezbollah is criminal in launching missiles from civilian neighborhoods, but that does not excuse the civilian death toll in Lebanon.
The State Department has to join the rest of the UN in calling for a cease-fire, and then try to resolve this problem.
